Sample Collection Options for this CA 125 Test.
This blood test seeks raised levels of CA 125, a protein that is present on the surface of most, but not all, ovarian cancer cells. This makes the test useful as a 'tumour marker' in specific circumstances. Significantly elevated concentrations of CA 125 may be present in the blood of a woman who has ovarian cancer. Small quantities of CA 125 are produced by normal tissues throughout the body and by some other cancers (including bowel) - but it is important to emphasize a higher level does not mean cancer is always present. Levels in the blood may be moderately elevated with a variety of non-cancerous conditions, including menstruation, pregnancy, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.UK
Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.UK
I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.UK
